Celebrate The Freedom To Read What We Want

by Ana on September 29, 2008

It’s that time of year again…the time to celebrate Banned Book Week. Held every year on the last week of September, BBW celebrates the freedom to choose or to create books that may sometimes be viewed unorthodox or controversial by some. Their goal is to promote intellectual freedom.

I remember one year in Florida there was a lot of buzz about a certain book that was being banned in all schools county by county. Guess what happened? EVERYONE wanted to read it…and just about everyone did. It’s still one of my favorites! It’s funny how banning books has that effect, no?

So go check out what it’s all about and also to see what titles are creating buzz this year. Enjoy your freedom!

    Banned Book Week? Wow, that’s actually pretty funny! I guess it works for everybody–you can either read a book that has been banned to celebrate your freedom to read it, or you can burn a book that you think should be banned to celebrate your freedom!

    Either way–celebrate your freedom of choice this week!
